A little story: Yesterday my car got taken away by wreckers. I was late to getting my license (age 21, people in my state usually get it around age 17) and when I finally got it, this was my first car. Originally, it was my Mum’s car - when she passed away I inherited it. The car was a little thing, but a trooper. I had bad anxiety about driving for a long time, so when I finally felt comfortable driving it was in this car. In the past year it started making odd noises, costing a lot to repair, running differently, and finally it started leaking oil and goodness knows what else. It was time to say goodbye. Letting my car go was sad in a way but also a weight off my shoulders - I survived without a license or a car for a long while, and now I’ll give it a go again. I know how ridiculously bad driving is for the environment (although many people don’t have other options, I definitely do, and I have become lazier through driving 100%). I know how it is impacting the fact I used to walk a LOT more. I know it is impacting my budget as it was costing me so much to run (insurance, road side assistance, repairs, petrol, parking) So today - after saying goodbye to my car - I walked in the sunshine, felt my legs pumping harder than they have in a while, and enjoyed the fresh air. Okay, my walk to the shops took me 30 mins there and back when it would be a 10 minute drive... It may not be the most convenient to not have a car... but I’m gonna give it a red hot go for now ✨ Next: maybe cycling? Who knows?
